Ringo Starr arrived early for The Beatles’ session on this day, so he dropped in to Abbey Road’s Studio Two where soul singer Solomon King was recording a ballad, A Hundred Years Or More.
Starr contributed handclaps to the recording, which can be heard in the UK mix, available as the b-side of King’s 1968 single Goodbye My Old Gal (Columbia DB 8505). They are most audible from around the 1’18” mark.
